Say hello to the most odd ball mashup to hit bookshelves, the Dangerous Damsel’s series! I read the first book in this series last year and it was such a random mashup of things but it was the oddest mashup that I never knew I needed! There was a lot to enjoy in the first book of this series even if I was admittedly lost in the story and genre as it were. The combo of pirates, magic, romance, and tea was alluring so I found myself really excited to read the next installment of this series.
While I couldn’t fit this one into my early spring review schedule, that doesn’t mean that I won’t be reading it a little later this year! I am so excited for this latest installment that features witches and of course—more pirates! I am so thrilled to bring you guys a little bit about this book! I know that it sounds like a weird combo but I swear it works! I love the whimsey and wit in the first book and am sure the second book will feature much of the same!
I adored the romance in the first book as well and I am sure that Alex and Charlotte will burn through the pages with chemistry. I have been reading some of the early reviews and it sounds like this book is going to be even better than the original. If you haven’t read the first book it sounds like that’s ok, meaning you can dive right in with this one without having to go back and read the first one. I am so excited to share my review once I am done with this one, but in the mean time make sure to check it out!
Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the teahouse…
Miss Charlotte Pettifer belongs to a secret league of women skilled in the subtle arts. That is to say—although it must never be said—witchcraft. The League of Gentlewomen Witches strives to improve the world in small ways. Using magic, they tidy, correct, and manipulate according to their notions of what is proper, entirely unlike those reprobates in the Wisteria Society.
When the long lost amulet of Black Beryl is discovered, it is up to Charlotte, as the future leader of the League, to make sure the powerful talisman does not fall into the wrong hands. Therefore, it is most unfortunate when she crosses paths with Alex O’Riley, a pirate who is no Mr. Darcy. With all the world scrambling after the amulet, Alex and Charlotte join forces to steal it together. If only they could keep their pickpocketing hands to themselves! If Alex’s not careful, he might just steal something else—such as Charlotte’s heart. (summary from Goodreads)
